Happy Birthday Dad

Yesterday was my Dad's Birthday. He would have been 78 years old. This summer marked the 25th anniversary of his passing.

Dad was just 52 when he died. I will be 52 in a week. We always celebrated our birthdays together.

I've been thinking about my Dad a lot lately and missing him as if it was only yesterday that he was here, driving by and honking hello, sticking a gift bow to his forehead, taking his granddaughter (my Aimee) to the latest Disney movie. My son never had a chance to meet him. That makes me sad because I know they would have been the very best buds.

I miss you Dad, and look to the day when we are reunited. Take care of my grandbabies and save a spot for me. I love you always and forever. Happy Birthday.

What a wonderful tribute post to your Dad. Love the photos! He shares a birthday with my oldest. Austin turned 17 yesterday.
